Aprašymas

Emily Dickinson and Louisa May Alcott lived in Massachusetts contemporaneously. One, reticent, cloistered, unknown, and largely unpublished spent her life on her family’s compound. The other a boisterous, acclaimed, successful adventurer was recognizable to the entire reading public. And yet, each woman read and revered the essays of Emerson and craved the attention of the critic and editor Thomas Wentworth Higginson. They were mutual friends of writer Helen Hunt Jackson and sculptor Daniel Chester French, among others.

What if Emily Dickinson and Louisa May Alcott had heard of each other, or, as proper Victorian ladies might, had corresponded?
It seems they did.

"The Bee and the Fly: The Improbable Correspondence of Louisa May Alcott and Emily Dickinson" presents a lifelong exchange of letters between Dickinson, the reclusive poet, and Alcott, the most renowned author of the time. What could Alcott say to Dickinson about abolitionism and women's rights? What might Dickinson reveal to Alcott about marriage and eternity? Researched for over five years and drawing heavily on biographical facts, these luminous letters present a believable friendship that explores the questions of family responsibilities, women’s growing influence in the literary world, the cost of fame, and the power of sorority.

Voiced by two authors who fully inhabit the personae of the nineteenth-century correspondents, the letters begin with a timid request from Dickinson to a “sister writer” and end with her death and the concealment of the letters. What is ultimately revealed through a lifetime of dispatches makes their secret correspondence not only plausible but delightfully possible.
